there. >> the first speech to ever mention equal rights for gays and lesbians and mr. obama's governing philosophy from here on out. >> we the people declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal is the star that guides us still just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and selma and stonewall, just as it guided all those men and women sung and unsung who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk away, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every sole honor. >> a very big day for temperature, for washington, for the country, very exciting day if you're fascinated by the clash of political ideas. we'll be looking at the speech as politics and poetry, the day as history and the night as culture before we do that let's listen to just a little of stevie wonder. ♪ in the middle of the making of barack obama jamin ♪ ♪ in the middle of the makings of obama oh jamming ♪ ♪ say it louder ♪ i can't hear you ♪ making things better for everybody. >>
has declared war on the u.s. government after hacking the federal sentencing commissions overnight, here is what the site looks like right now. all morning it's been going from being totally shut down to showing a video and this long letter that demands many things. it's here in green on this black page. >> the video and letter addressed to the citizens of the world threatens, quote, chaos. and nick valencia has been looking into this for us this morning. how real is this threat? >> they're very real threats. in the past they've followed through on similar threats in disabling websites like the fbi and government websites like the department of justice. not the first time they've taken down the doj. they're comprised mostly of anarchist-type computer hackers. they are a leaderless organization. again, they've got a lot of global support. they're demanding fundamental changes to the department of justice. they believe a past high-profile hackers have been victims, they say, to draconian, overzel us charges by the government. they said this morning it was a very symbolic move to take
of an internet activist by releasing government secrets. hello, everyone. i'm don lemon. you're in the "cnn newsroom." full details in a moment, but first, let's get you up to speed on the day's headlines. first, to egypt where rioting has erupted over a court decision sentencing 21 people to death. at least 30 people were killed in clashes with security forces today. this all happened after the court sentenced 21 people for their role in a postgame soccer riot last year. more than 70 people were killed in that riot. >> a veteran democratic senator says he's going to retire. iowa's tom harkin will not run for re-election in 2014. he has served ten years in the house before his election to the senate in 1984. president barack obama released a statement just minutes ago praising harkin's work on health care and his efforts to help americans with disabilities. >> actor burt reynolds is being treated for flu symptoms in a florida hospital. he was dehydrated when he went to the hospital and initially transferred to intensive care. his spokes person said reynolds' fever is down and he's getting b
that the election said more than anything else is the people of our country want to see a government that works. >> yes. regardless of whether that's about taxes or cuts. ? and we've got to -- and i hope the administration and barack obama, the president, will come and join us and say, look, it's time for us to set differences aside and do what any couple does, any group of people do, which is say, look, you're not going to agree 100% on everything and you're not going to agree 100% on anything, so find where we can agree. >> and when they did that on january 1st of the year you voted against it. they found middle ground between democrats and -- >> there was no middle ground because where were the cults? here's what we did. >> middle ground on the fact you guys asked for no tax increases, then put a threshold of a million dollars. >> we had always said, according to the boehner rule, we had always said if we're going to raise revenues through borrowing, through taxing, we've got to do something about the problem. you can't keep digging the hole deeper and keep asking people to pay more taxes. >
. is this a failure of intelligence gathering, a failure of the government in libya to cooperate? what are you hearing? >> well, i think it falls on the shoulders of the libyans to find these people. libya is a chaotic country right now. the attack on algeria, libya played some part -- not at the state, but groups in libya. it is hard to find people when there is no central authority. and also for american intelligence, it is fairly new -- it is a new scene. and collecting data takes years on this, i'm not surprised at all. what worries me is the libyans seem to be making no progress at all, nobody of significant in jail and haven't even named anybody. it is going to be a long time before we run this to ground, whether we do or not. i don't know. >> we're going to hear more from bob bear in a minute and dana bash sitting here with me. the hearing has begun. let's take a listen at this hearing right now. >> -- below the department's most senior management. this seems to contrast with the recommendation of the 1990 -- 1999 accountability on the east africa bombings which said that, quote, the secretary
with the libyan government. they had a willingness to protect our people but not a capacity. if you knew there was no capacity, i saw that video from that night. i have to tell you, the libyans that we had charged, we outsourced our security to, they ran as soon as they saw those attackers come to the consulate gate. and so we knew they didn't have that capacity. i think as the person who is in charge, the accountability review board found that there were systemic failures of leadership, that this is a very important issue. >> i've been listening to the republicans getting on their high horse about this for a long time. i thought a lot of today's criticism was political grandstanding in many ways. if you go back to catastrophic intelligence failures before 9/11 or in the build to the iraq war more serious than this. that's not to diminish the deaths of four americans but those led to the deaths of many, many, many more americans. you got to say get this in perspective. hillary clinton to me seemed to me today to be sincere. i don't think anyone can expect the secretary of state to read e
a perfect calculation to that. the problem with the afghan government and people is they lack certainty, they look confidence. they're terrified by 2014, not because there's been no progress, but because they're afraid they'll lose that progress. in 199, they turned their back on the region. i think what they need to see from america is enough engagement to show that we are not going to abandon them. >> i went to ask president karzai. i wantmen business here to be making a profit, because if you were here and making a profit, then you'll have a stake in our security. i think that's one kind of indicator. i think it l probably be necessary us -- it's time for them to protect their sovereignty for the most part and so we have got to figure out how best to do that. >> joe hadden a number? >> i have said 10,000 to 15,000 and let me give you a sense of what that comprises. >> number one training. no one can prothen finally, our we have got a sufficient to print and basic structure to do that. >> but this is correct. just the way it laid out here, everyone else in the neighborhood is looking,
, they are extremists. they have designs on overthrowing existing governments, even these new islamist governments of controlling territory. so although there has been the decimation of core al qaeda in the afghanistan/pakistan region, we do have to contend with the wannabes and affiliates going forward. >> thank you, madam. >> thank you, mr. chairman and thank you, madam secretary for being here and it's great to see you today. you have been, i think, a real and dedicated public servant for this country and your travels around the world as many here have talked about it, the million miles that you have put on and all the countries you visited and i think you've been to many countries where they've never had a secretary of state and i've seen firsthand when i've been to many of these countries, the difference it makes to have you there on the ground. so i, first of all, just want to thank you for that and i know it does take a toll but you are incredibly dedicated to that. secondly, it's great to see you here in good health. >> thank you. >> smiling and engaging with all of us. and i want to ad to
and one head of government. we'll see them in coming weeks. this week one king and one prime minister. we'll start with the king of jordan, abdullah ii. his nation sits in turmoil between syria, egypt, iraq and saudi arabia. despite some protests, jordan hasn't had its own arab spring. everyone was watching the parliamentary elections this week. will they satisfy protesters or inflame them? we'll get the king's reaction. then, the prime minister of r h russia dmitry medvedev. some call it a new cold war. who's to blame and will russia help in syria? we'll discuss it all. >>> also, the algerian hostage crisis that left dozens dead. is this a sign of a grave, new terror threat? i'll tell you my view. >>> but, first, here's my take. every year at davos people like me try to get a sense of the mood of the place. take the temperature of people in this frosty mountain resort. obviously, i will give you a highly impressionistic and personal picture, but one i find useful since davod does bring together leaders and government, business and media and even the ngo community from all corners of the
against the most defenseless. the question is does government have the obligation to protect those children? i believe we do. i believe we do. >> a quick question on this. i want to ask on a couple other subjects. could you see your way clear to a school security program or to saying listen, i think there maybe be arm guards at some of the schools? >> of course. one-third of the schools in america today have school guards. there were two at columbine. they couldn't get to the shooter. and that is the problem with this thing. having school guards really isn't the whole answer. the more you have these weapons, these military style weapons that with the single stock of the ar-15 can be made fully automatic, the minute you have it in the sandy hook killer's hands, have youyou have a devas weapon. >> it is now bubbling up. i'm surprised the speaker of the house, president of the united states, we're very close to an immigration bill. give me a sense of where the senate is on that? where congress is on the immigration bill? >> my understanding from senator schumer, we will have a stateme
. this is a poke in the eye of the justice department and a slap in the face to the u.s. government. the hacker group anonymous chose this u.s. federal sentencing website. they said it was a symbolic move by them. they believe that the u.s. department of justice is in clear violation of the eighth amendment, cruel and unusual punishment they're calling it. our washington bureau reached out to the fbi earlier today, miguel, and we obtained this statement from the fbi's assistant director of criminal cyber response and services branch. he had this. "we are aware as soon as it happened and we are handling it as a criminal investigation. we are always concerned when someone illegally accesses another person or government agency's network." the fbi saying they're well aware of this incident which happened a little after midnight. we've been following it all morning. >> what does anonymous hope to gain from this? it sounds like they'll only bring war down upon themselves and the government. >> we've tried to reach out to other hacker groups to get their take, but in the statement, i was poring over t
and creating an environment for businesses to invest because they think governments are being responsible, things have slowed down so much there's been so much unemployment, 11.6% in the euro zone than it's having the opposite effect. we have to find a more dalan ba approach to how we go forward. europe has a disproportionate influence of this conversation. there is a conversation particularly vis-a-vis the united states as to how much is too much and how much austerity, how much in terms of cutting back is actually enough, christine? >> really nice to see you. when you run into indiana jones, he can have his hat back. nice to see you. >> how many bars are there over the world that have pictures of you in them? >> no, i turned 28 at a davos -- last year -- and it was one of the best birthdays ever. first time i ever ran into kings and bankers and princesses. it's really an interesting .01% of the global leaders. >> with the official public swearing inform the president all done, you know that, small matter over, the really big news of the day -- what was she wearing? look at that lovely r
anonymous has declared war on the u.s. government. it took over the website of the united states sentencing commission this morning and posted this video. the message demands reforms of the justice system. hackers threatened chaos if the government doesn't meet their demands. the message says the suicide death of internet activist aaron schwartz prompted the threat. he was facing federal computer fraud charges and 35 years in jail. >>> live pictures for you this morning here. thousands of people expected to march on the national mall in washington later this morning to support tighter gun control measures, lawmakers, pastors, even some celebrities will be joined by victims of mass shootings, including residents from newtown, connecticut. they want congress to enforce a ban on military-style assault weapons and require universal background checks. >>> number three now, and this is pretty controversial. the milwaukee county sheriff here you see took out a radio ad that warns people to arm themselves. listen to sheriff david clark jr. >> with officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 91
's the fbi saying in. >> this is a big slap in the face for the u.s. government. anonymous said they targeted the federal website because it's a section of the department of justice. they feel the department of justice has trumped up charges against high profile activists. we reached out to the fbi earlier today. our washington, d.c. bureau carol krade was able to speak to the executive assistant director of criminal cyberresponse and services branch. this is what they had to tell us. we were aware as soon as it happened. and are handling it as a criminal investigation. we are always concerned when someone illegally accesses another person or government agency's networking. >> but this is concerning because this is not just where they overwhelmed the server with a bunch of requests basically. they went after them. they actually took control of the server. the government takes great precautions and measures to keep this from happening. can you walk us through what they did? >> i don't know and i think that's the question right now they took control of the server. they claim they had full contr
. we know little more about him today than when he took over the government for his father king jong-il. what what we do know, he's in his late 20s, spent some time in a swiss boarding school and he married the woman to his left on your screen. we have not seen her since these pictures came out. no idea if they're still married, if she's still on the scene. now uppermost in a lot of minds of the people, is this man calling the shots? is the military calling the shots? who exactly is in control and what does control mean in that country? this week kim's government unlived some very firy rhetoric, threats against the united nations and united states. and key ally south korea. the warning, more rocket tests and the latest one coming today, a warning to the south of, quote, strong physical counter measures, end quote, if the south helps to enforce new u.n. sanctions against the north, sanctions imposed after north korea's rocket launch last month. washington believes they're trying to develop missiles that could hit the united states, missiles that could one day possibly be armed with nu
. barbara now reporting this connection, that the u.s. government sees. barbara said, we did talk about this last would be hours after the siege began. i spoke on the phone with omar amaha, a military leader in the militant group izarden. he told me americans were being held mestage and the attackers demanded the end to french and american involvement in mali for their release. he knew because, he told me, he's working with because of al qaeda's most senior leaders, mokhtar belmokhtar, the person claiming responsibility for the january 16th attack. omar hamaha made claims how widespread the terror network is in north africa when i asked how many fighters he had. >> translator: listen. the number of fighters is not important for us. be it 10,000 or only 10 people. we're going to hit in the heart all the countries of west africa. it's no longer only in northern mali. yes, it's not only in bomoko. it will be western africa. not only western africa, a big battle against france and the united states and all the other countries that want to intervene. >> retired general wesley clark is the fo
war on the u.s. government by targeting this website. it contained a long warning threatening to release sensitive information about the department of justice in what it calls war heads, these are named after supreme court justices. you may never have browsed ussc.gov, but they said that there's a reason that they select method website, to target -- selected this website. earlier today, the fbi said they were aware of the cyber attack as soon as it happened and they are handling it as a criminal investigation. don? >> emily, thank you very much. anonymous, a hacker group has inserted itself into several news stories. they took a stand in a rape case that hit a small down in ohio, posting a video of one of the suspects and encouraging large scale protests. president obama will make a appearance with 60 minutes on the exit of hillary clinton. >> why did you want to do this together? a joint interview? >> the main thing is i wanted to have a chance to publically say thank you. because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we have had. it has been a
with the economy, social issues and government spending. she'll have four more years in her high profile position as first lady and agenda, all while making a fashion statement doing it. it sounds so shallow, doesn't it? pulitzer prize winning journalist robyn jiovan, good morning. thank you for being here. >> good morning. >> it always sounds so silly when you talk about the first lady's fashion but there is meaning behind it. please expound on that. >> yes, you know, i think it's one of the things that frustrates people within the fashion industry and probably a good deal of people who cover it. there seems t be this idea that these dresses, these suits that people wear and that they buy somehow just sort of drop out of the sky, that they're made by elves or something. we're talking about a $350 billion industry, an industry made up of a tremendous number of small businesses who, that employ actual live people. so to have a conversation about the impact of a first lady really underscoring the american fashion industry is really a conversation about a first lady who is celebrating american busin
not closed the gap between the government and a frustrated local and vocal opposition. the population who want even more change. i want to bring in reza sayah in cairo. take us to the scene in cairo there behind you. i understand that protesters have gathered. there are some police officers that are hurt. this is just in cairo alone. >> reporter: yes, suzanne. there have been clashes here. we don't want to blow things out of proportion. here in cairo the violence has been limited to about two streets. behind us there's a street that leads to the interior ministry and other government buildings. police erected a large barrier. what you have is on one side protesters teenagers throwing rocks and debris over the barrier at police. police responding by firing tear gas. sometimes police themselves throwing rocks at the protesters, which is probably not a strategy you'll find in a police training manual. a few blocks away, tahrir square, much more orderly. the people are impassioned and intense. more than 10,000 people at least gathered here in tahrir square. hard to believe it was two years ag
with republicans, make government work. and when you look at a guy like joe biden in four years, that's a good record to run on. >> gop want to run against joe biden? would you say, great, he's running for the presidency? >> part of you that says, yeah, we want to hear what he has to say, when he opens his mouth, sometimes something comes out you don't expect, that he doesn't expect, and that makes it fun. >> look what he did this week. spoke to an iowa group during the inauguration weekend. who did he invite? the new hampshire governor. >> soledad, i was at naacp convention in houston when he spoke. and folks can get mad all they want to. but i'm telling you right now, he gave a more fired up speech that rocked that crowd that even president obama has. he lit that place up. >> he is definitely a performer. loves to be in front of the issues. fun to watch. >> interesting to see if that performance aspect and authenticity, does that translate to 2016? hard to believe we are only a couple of days into the new inauguration. >> don't forget all of the dentists that love him. >>> the nra launches a
be respectful to secretary clinton. but it will go beyond politics. did the government do enough to protect their citizens? did the state department ignore social security concerns? what are survivors telling investigators, and what's being done to track down the terrorist that laid siege on these offices. it's likely to be a day of blunt questions and intense scrutiny, wolf blitzer is in washington to begin our coverage. >>> good morning, it will be a very important day for the secretary of state this morning. she has a big challenge ahead of her. she has to convince not only men members of the senate, but later the house that she is on top of what happened, why four diplomats were killed, she has to explain what she was doing on that very day. jake tapper is our chief correspondent. it's one of those hearings that we're interested in seeing how tough the questions will wind up being. >> that's right, for secretary of state hillary clinton this is the losing time of her tenure. she'll be leaving in the next few days. this is a rather uncomfortable swan song for her. also, we have some new
at the state level that we can look to, the federal government needs to look at and see, those are things that actually could prevent some of this gun violence. let's make the crimes harsher, let's federalize some of the penalties for using a gun to commit a crime. >> all right. i just -- i find it ironic that people who want spending cuts are proposing more spending. that's a separate issue. john, let me ask you about this that i referenced in texas. they are now saying there's a law being considered, a bill in texas, where if you're already allowed to carry concealed hand gun, you would now be allowed to carry that concealed hand gun on a college or university campus. is that bill going to change because of what happened today or is it just going to go full ahead? >> let's hope so. if there's some common sense and decency on the part of the legislators to respond to changing facts on the ground. look, this shooting is a case study for why more guns on college campuses are a terrible idea. i mean, it doesn't pass the common sense test. anyone who has been to college, it's hard to imagine
? >> this is what this year the government is willing to permit? >> but you have already agreed -- >> in new york state -- >> you have already agreed with the decision to not permit americans to have automatic firing weapons. what's the difference? >> i don't think people -- okay, so now we're arguing over whether or not very many people's lives will be saved. i'm challenging you and others -- >> no, i'm not asking you. i'm asking you how many more guns does an american civilian need other than 2,200 that would be permitted under the new assault weapons ban. how many do they need to defend themselves, for goodness sake? what i can't understand, what is the difference between mass slaughter created by an automatic weapon and weapon we saw at aurora or sandy hook that can kill 100 people in a minute. what is the difference? >> wait a second. first of all, you're making our case. permitted. in other words, this year they're going to permit. next year, they may not permit. >> there are 50 or more gun control rules which do not permit americans to use certain types of weaponry already. so that permiss
he hits the reset button with the republican party. a time with divided government, that's when you can do the most big things, i hope the president and the republicans work together to do something important for the country in terms of our debt, entitlements, crucial we do that for kids and grandkids. >> both parties have internal divisions too. your party is trying to sort out mitt romney's loss in the election. a debate, some conservatives don't want a new immigration policy that allows those who came illegally to stay. some democrats don't want to touch medicare, social security. if you have a grand bargain who is the circuit breaker so everybody can talk together and things get done as opposed to confrontation? >> well, and this is the time to do it. there are big things that need to be done for the country with regard to immigration. immigration is the backbone of the country. that's what your country is built on. legal immigration. we have to move forward with immigration reform, marco rubio. >> senator, forgive me for interrupting, but as we move forward on immigration, your
on the u.s. government after hacking the federal sentencing commission's website overnight. in a video they posted on that site along with a letter dressed to citizens of the world, anonymous is threatening chaos if the government doesn't meet their demands which includes limiting the power of the federal prosecutors to go after and, quote, destroy the lives of hacktivists. this month's suicide of web activist schwartz triggered the latest attack. schwartz was facing charges and could've faced 35 years in prison. >>> hillary clinton is wrapping up her time at the state department. this week, she testified before two congressional committees about benghazi. next week will be her last as secretary of state. she and her boss talked with "60 minutes" about her time on the job. >> why did you want to do this together? a joint interview? >> well, the main thing is, i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you. i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. i'm going to miss her, wish sh

the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles in just one week. neutrogena®. >>> good morning. thanks so much for joining us. i'm carol costello. stories we're watching right now in "the newsroom" at 30 past the hour. apple shares expected to dra

, but if we don't fully understand what's happening and how it's adjusting, how can the government do anything about it? >> look, that's a fair point. i'm not saying throwing money at the problem is the answer. >> i don't know, it's one thing. >> that's the larger point though, right? we should have a sense of humility, but we should take action to solve problems and if we don't, if one political says it shouldn't be talked about, it looks like you're coddling flat earth society folks. >> all right. thanks. >> the facts are -- >> quick wrap. >> all right. i was going to let him get another five seconds, but he was quiet when i asked. next, john boehner says he's convinced the president plans to annihilate the gop. and apple's shares tanking after hours. who's to blame? could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking.

french government workers to stop using terms like weekend, and hamburger, and e-mail. and use french equivalents instead. they encourage teachers to introduce the new terms in schools. now the commission has a new target. hash tag. now, a hash tag is a word or a phrase prefixed with a pound sign. just like that. hash tag. it's used to mark key words or topics often on twitter. the american dialect society even voted it the word of the year. but the commissione hates that word because it is in english. they have invented a new term for the french to use. this term translates to sharp word. because the number sign looks like the sharp symbol used in music. the sharp symbol leans a little more to the left. but you know, it's appropriate. it's a little clunkier than the hash tag, too. but according to the commissione, that is the one the french will use. listen, france, we understand why you're doing this. france was the most important language for almost 300 years. you know what, we're probably going to feel same way about mandarin one day. but we don't ban your words. we are gra

. he's comparing to an east german government effort to dope at the olympics. he also denied that even within the sport of cycling, it was not the most sophisticated. but you're saying, juliet, it's arguable whether in all sports, but in the sport of cycling there was no other team that could do what this team could. >> well, i'm not sure. but if there was a team like that, then the u.s. postal service team wouldn't have won seven tours in a row. that was pretty phenomenal. there was a reason for that. you know, people tend to think it was because they were doping better than everybody else. >> it's, again, another development in this ongoing story. we'll continue to follow it. betty andreu we appreciate talking to you. and juliet macur as well. thank you very much. we're talking about this on twitter. let's continue the conversation on twitter @anderson cooper. >>> president obama sitting down for his first joint interview with secretary of state hillary clinton. we'll take a listen to some of what they said and look ahead at what could be next for secretary clinton after leaving the
